Japanese vacation

Last 2 weeks I spent with my beloved person, she came from Ukraine. After 6 months in different countries we finally met each other. There were a lot of places to visit and to show. As I am here for more than 6 months it appeared that I do not notice anymore many things which is unusual for a ukrainian in Japan. Thanks to her I have changed my point of view concernig Japan.

First thing was hush. It strange but I have never noticed before that in one of the most crowded places – Tokyo – you can hardly hear noise of people speaking. In subway we could hear speaking only ourselves. In the same time by some reason it was really pleasant to shock shy japanese by kissing and hugging anywhere we could actually do it. After one week we got results – we started to meet couples doing the same. We were glad and proud of ourselves.

Then sushi. In Europe most of people have this image that JApanese nation start its day with sushi, continues it with sushi and ends it with the same old good sushi. Tahnks to the sushi-bars. So we were looking for sushi bar everyday in every place we go. Funny, but it appeared not so easy. We had to understand japanese like soba or udon different kinds of takoyaki and okonomiyaki not less and sometimes even more than sushi, but we needed only sushi and we got them a lot)

KIds. We love kids. In Ukraine we say “kids are the flowers of life”. Lisa always her camera with her and everyday there were so many children that had become heroes of her photos. They were different: they were shy, they were angry, they were laughing, they were crying. They were children and they definitely liked to stare at us)

I am sorry. The first day we met, LIsa said I am saying “I am sorry” almost after every action, which seemed strange. After that she started to fool around saying “すみません” for everything ant then laughed. If we were riding in a subway where you can here a lot of announcements pronounced in the same manner all the time, she was always asking if they are apologizing for something)

Places. PLaces were different. We have been to KAnto and Kansai. Met different characters. There was a woman in NAra which was the owner of a pottery shop. She new numerous phrases in russian. Said it is her dream to go to Russia and Ukraine with Siberian railway. She also gave us a chocolate and was almost hugging us when we were leaving. There were a lot of places to see and experience.
